Shopping around town

Got some great deals today.
I'll start out with my clothing deals.

I found a coupon for $10 off your purchase at Christopher & Banks over at Money Saving Madness. I was a bit skeptical, partly because it seems like a GREAT deal, and partly because it seems like an old lady clothes store. I was pleasantly surprised to find a whole wall of 9.99 clothing at the store (they had really cute skirts too). I got this sweater (originally $39.50) to go over some of my teaching outfits and paid .63 (tax).


I got a card in the mail for a free lacie undie and $5 off 1 bra and $15 off 2 bras. Normally I walk in and get the free undie and leave. Today I took a look around and found Demi and Ipex bras at 40% off (with all the sizes and colors available) I got 2 Demi bras and a lace undie for $30. (normal price for 1 bra is $38)

Many racks were 75% off already reduced prices at Maurices. I had a $10 off punch card that was full and a gift card so I got these deals and paid $1.65 OP.

The socks were .99 each, the shoes were under $5, I forget how much the shirts were. This dress was 9.99!

I stopped at Office Max to get something printed. I also got these deals:

Crayons .01 each box
Eraser pack .25 each pack

Limit for teachers is double the regular limit.

My average savings for grocery store receipts (it says it at the bottom) is 66%. I'm hoping to increase that, but the last 4 receipts have said 66%:)
FYI- When I find my grocery deals on other blogs the prices vary some, and usually the produce deals are NOT the same.
I found some of my Safeway deals at Moneywise Mom HERE and at being frugal is fabulousHERE
